Shalom, everyone! The following is a video clip from “The Dr. Mumbi Show,” in which Dr. Mumbi Seraki discusses why Africa is still a “mess.” Africa‘s “former” colonizers are still in control of the continent through the “Neo-Colonial Pyramid” with the following hierarchy:
- Former Colonizer – European governments, royalty or nobility
- Ruling Elite – Government, wealthy families
- Managers – NGO agencies, professionals
- Masses – Uneducated, poor, working class
It’s not that Africans have not tried to stand up and fight for their complete independence. The “former” colonizers still maintain military bases in their African colonies. The “former” colonizers still control the central banks, monetary policy, and economic policy. Anyone who has stood up for the benefit of Africans in the past has been assassinated or taken down by a military coup. The “former” colonizers have no problem with corrupt local governments because these governments do their bidding. Africa is still enslaved and colonized. Our freedom and identity lie in reconnecting with YAH The Most High. He is Our Healer and Our Deliverer.
The most common question about Africa is why are we still in the mess that the former colonialist put us in? why have we never been able to unite as a continent? Why Is Africa the richest continent and yet home to the poorest, most illiterate people in the world?
This is all because of a covert neocolonial system that continues to control the content through the colonial order that was created in the 1884 Berlin Conference. African nations have maintained the artificial borders and governments that the colonizer put in place. Worse still is that nearly all African states still have a military presence of these oppressors combined with the US military. That makes many of our nations occupied territories.
But there is a way out. Find out in this month’s #Africa101
